Caroline Gräfin von Krockow

Caroline von Krockow is a Solicitor (UK) in Paris. Caroline was born in Germany, has lived in Madrid, New York and London and now calls Paris home with her husband and three children.


Caroline comes from a prominent European family. Her father is Count Matthias von Krockow, a descendant of the Teutonic Knights from Krokowa. Ilona von Ullmann, her mother, descends from Waldemar von Oppenheim and the Goldschmidt family, one of the oldest banking families, Sal. Oppenheim. With her international upbringing and her energy Caroline naturally mingles across generations, styles and cultural backgrounds.


She has a bachelor’s degree in history from King’s College London and three master’s degrees, one in media and communications, another in law and her most recent in creative writing. Her passion for education is only matched by her love of art.

She is an intellectual property lawyer with a global clientele concentrated on art law.


She recently completed writing The White Rose, which spans from Belle Epoque Europe to today. This historical novel is about the art world, family drama, romantic deception and a painting that goes missing. She is a monthly columnist for Cercle Magazine and a freelance writer for several publications. She is a focused yet versatile writer who covers everything from art and fashion to business and law.


As illustrated, nearly every aspect of her life touches art — from enjoying art exhibits and attending fashion shows to traveling the world and reading literature.
